The Secret World is an upcoming massively multiplayer online game with a unique modern-day setting and unparalleled freedom of character progression. The game features a wide assortment of characters to play and monsters to fight, including werewolves. I know us werewolf fans are big on killing werewolves, but hey, it’s a new badass game with werewolves in it and that has to count for something, right?
From the creative mind of Ragnar Tørnquist – creator of the award-winning The Longest Journey – comes a story unlike anything seen in a massively multiplayer online game. With the whole world, all its history, all its legends and all its myths to choose from, the developers of The Secret World are creating a story unlike anything we have ever seen before in a massively multiplayer online game. The Secret World features a unique, story-driven gameplay experience that explores the myths, legends and conspiracy theories of the real world. The upcoming game brings MMO storytelling to a whole new level by putting you and your friends right in the middle of an exciting, overarching storyline filled with memorable characters and unique missions never before seen in a game of its kind. Experience missions with a purpose, many of which go beyond the grind quests traditionally seen in massively multiplayer online games.
Well, they have me sold, that’s for sure. I’m a huge fan of real MMO’s so The Secret World really has me excited. It’s definitely different, I mean, you get to join actual secret societies like The Illuminati and the Templars and then you explore real and legendary locations such as Stonehenge and El Dorado. It sounds fantastic! I really love the mixture of real world ideas and myths and legends. Even the monsters are awesome, not only are there werewolves, but there’s wendigo, revenants, some freaky thing called akab and many more incredible beasts inspired by folktales. I’m so in love!
This is totally a game I’ll be buying and playing obsessively. Not sure if it’ll beat out my love for WoW, but we’ll find out.
